Terrorist group founder now running online neo-Nazi T-shirt business
German state Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Prime Minister Manuela Schwesig (SPD [Social Democrat]) has to find a new Minister of the Interior: Lorenz Caffier resigns.
The CDU ([conservative] Christian Democratic Union) politician is thus drawing the consequences of the purchase of a weapon from a dealer suspected of belonging to the right-wing extremist group "Nordkreuz" (Northern Cross, a right-wing terrorism group).
Germany's Federal Interior Minister has banned the far-right group "Sturmbrigade 44". The announcement came after a series of police raids last year against group members.
The declared goal of the group, also known as "Wolfsbrigade 44", to be achieved by force, was said to be the "revival of a free fatherland" according to "German moral law". They are the armed subgroup of the larger Wolfsbrigade organisation.
Germany: Muslim Migrant Hailed as ‘Model Refugee’ Murders Handicapped Man
In a similar vein, this Karam A. was hailed as a “model refugee” for his success in assimilating into German society. But it seems as if he still carried within him some of the attitudes and assumptions created by a culture of violence that mandates the execution of homosexuals.
Yet no one could have predicted that this would happen, as there is, here again, no reliable way to distinguish between peaceful Muslims and violent ones. Instead of heaping abuse upon those who point this out, genuinely peaceful Muslims should be working hard to establish such a distinction, in Germany and elsewhere, because of course no one would dream of actually doing something so radical as seriously vetting the migrants.
Like the military, the police have been aggressively courted by the far-right Alternative for Germany party, known by its German initials, AfD, since its founding in 2013. Four of the AfD’s 88 lawmakers in the federal Parliament are former police officers — nearly 5 percent compared with less than 2 percent in all other parties.
Penetrating state institutions, especially those with guns, has been part of the party’s strategy from the start. Especially in eastern states, a more extremist AfD has already made deep inroads into the police force.
Björn Höcke, a history teacher turned firebrand politician who runs the AfD in the eastern state of Thuringia, has repeatedly appealed to police officers and intelligence agents to resist the orders of the government, which he calls “the real enemies of democracy and freedom.”
This report in the NYT sums up the influence of the neo-Nazis on the police in Germany quite well
The NYT does nothing well but lie.

All the report or just some phrases?
And since the NYT is just summarising - are the known facts (in German) a lie as well?
Maybe due to your good contacts in the neo-Nazi scene you can provide better sources than the testimonies of the accused and the seized evidence?
Saxony-Anhalt's Higher Regional Court today convicted a right-wing extremist of murder and attempted murder and sentenced him to life in prison (and additional preventive detention, if released earlier) for his attack on a synagogue last year on Yom Kippur, Judaism’s holiest day. He killed two people after he failed to gain entry to the building.
This neo-Nazi apologised to the court for killing the woman, saying "I didn’t want to kill whites". But otherwise, the attacker showed no remorse, but kept to his hate-filled anti-Semitic and racist world view.
The president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, Josef Schuster, said the verdict marked "an important day for Germany".
